Office of Equity Student Advisory Board Applications Open

The Office of Equity is excited to invite all interested students to apply to join our Student Advisory Board. The Office of Equity works to prevent and remediate harassment, discrimination, and sexual misconduct in the Northwestern community, and is committed to integrating student voices into these efforts.  We invite students with interest to join the Student Advisory Board (SAB). The purpose of the SAB is to provide a dedicated avenue for student perspective, feedback, and recommendations on the goals, policies, procedures, and services of the Office of Equity. Members serve on the SAB for the current academic year and may join again the following year.  Members must commit to attending as many meetings as possible, and scheduling will seek to accommodate members as much as possible. Due to the nature of the topics that this group discusses, members must be able to maintain confidentiality, and demonstrate good ethical judgment.
